Students can begin submitting this information NOW!!! They are encouraging online applications and discouraging paper ones. However, they sent me about 25 paper copies in English and Spanish. Mr. Benjamin has these and will give these to students. However, paper copies take three times longer to process, and if the student makes an error or does not give enough information, they return the application and the whole process begins again. Seniors need to apply for a PIN (personal identification number) for them and their parents at www.pin.ed.gov . These PINS will be their online signatures.
